"Chanel -- named the oldest dog by Guinness World Records last year -- is taking a rare trip from her Port Jefferson Station home to mingle with canine buddies invited to her Manhattan birthday party.
The old girl's red hair faded to white a long time ago. Her cataracts force her to wear special doggie glasses and her bones feel the cold.
Her home is kept at a constant 72 degrees. She eats boiled chicken with whole-wheat pasta, and a specially selected soft treat designed for her ancient teeth."
"Chanel took the title as the oldest dog last spring when a 28-year-old beagle from Virginia died." http://www.nypost.com/seven/05062009/news/regionalnews/oldest_dogs_a_senior_wiener_167831.htm
